The Perfect Monogrammed Tote

We almost made it through the week! It has warmed up so much here in Pittsburgh, it feels like Spring! The warmer weather is making me crave patio happy hours and lightweight clothing. I love starting new seasons with a different handbag and I found the perfect one for Springtime! 

I'm always in search of a tote that is great for travel and everyday use. Not to mention one that you can use all year round. The Charlotte Handbag from Marleylilly checks off all these boxes! It's lined on the inside and comes in two colors. The best part is you can customize the thread color/monogram font. I chose to do the "octagonal" lettering because I loved the way it looked on the bag. You can actually see what each font will look like before you purchase! Just click the personalize button, type in your initials and choose which font you want to see. 

I styled this bag a couple different ways. First, with a fun graphic tee and pink shag cardi. The neutral color means you can really pair it with anything! I've gotten so many compliments on the chain detail as well. 

I also paired it with a chunky sweater, a leopard fur jacket and some oversized sunnies! I've been using it for work these past couple weeks, and it fits my planner perfectly. I love that you don't have to fish around to find something. It's not too big or too small. It also has a snap closure across the top and a zip pocket inside. 

I'll definitely be getting a ton of use out of this bag! It's on sale for less than $45 right now, which includes personalization. With Valentine's Day next week it would also make the perfect gift!

Hope you guys have a good Friday tomorrow! 

Thank you Marleylilly for the opportunity to collaborate! All opinions are my own.
